VALDOSTA — Thank you to the young lady that paid for my 95-year-old mother’s groceries last week at Save-A-Lot. You brightened her day!

Thank you to W. G. Nunn for having their open house at night when parents can attend. I am looking forward to working with the teachers and new principal.

Thank you so very much to the person in a black Mercedes who bought our breakfast at Zacadoo’s. It was a lovely thing to do and we will pay it forward. Thank you!

Thank you to Teresa Cason for your kind words for the Valdosta State Prison staff in a recent “Letter to the Editor.” It is not often we are recognized for doing this job. Your gesture was not unnoticed.

A big rave to Smith Northview Hospital. I have been out there twice and the surgical unit has been so nice. They even call you the next day to see how you are doing and even send you a card. I rave for Smith Northview Hospital.

A big rave to Dr. Zeigler and staff at SGMC. I had to have emergency surgery and they all treated me very kindly. Thank you very, very much. You all did a great job!

A big God bless to the three young men who helped push my vehicle out of the intersection of Gornto and Baytree road on Monday during rush hour traffic. I will pay it forward. Thank you very much.

 I want everybody to know I bought some great local honey called Honey Bell Farms from Mama June’s. It has really helped with my allergies. Thanks to Honey Bell Farms for putting local honey back in the market for this area.

We decided on short notice to have Fazoli's cater a lunch for eight employees. The order taking, preparation and pick-up were flawless. The general manager has a wonderful and competent staff and we want to thank him for the great food and great service. We will definitely use Fazoli's again!

    I want to thank Brittney who has been my family’s favorite waitress at Cheddar’s since they opened their doors. Saturday night was no exception. She never lost her composure while I witnessed some crude treatment from the customers seated near us. Keep your head up.

    VDT, please refrain from posting gun control comments. My son and I were at breakfast and he mentioned the low price of assault rifles at a gun show. I said that I was opposed to these. Two fellows overheard this and on their way out, the larger one said that I sounded like some the "communists" writing against America in the newspaper. He said that if were up to him I would be “lined up.” He got into a dilapidated Dodge pickup with anti-Obama, pro NRA, and a Baptist Church bumper sticker.

    It wasn’t  Remerton where  the rats were escaping to Azalea Drive, it was  from the raw sewage. At least  they are smarter than people.

    Thomas Jefferson said that we don't keep and bear fire arms for any other reason than to protect ourselves from tyrannical government action. That is why the liberals are trying to suppress Christians’ freedom of speech and why the government is trying to label gun ownership as a bad idea.

    The Swiss issue all adult men a firearm. Owning a gun does not condone, or create, violence. Lay blame on the person not the tool. If you really believe that banning firearms will end the violence you are sadly misled. All that will happen is law abiding people will not have guns and the criminal (who doesn't obey the law anyway) will.

    I don't know of any gun owners who fantasize about being "the good guy with a gun." Just when you think you have heard the most ignorant statement possible, along comes one that tops them all.

    Monday, I observed a woman at Walmart getting into her car, with two boys around the age of 8, one of which seated a young infant on his own lap in the rear seat, not using his seat belt. As the lady began backing out, I jumped out of my car and asked her to put that baby in a car seat. Stupid! Please, parents, don’t have a kid, if you don’t care to put them in a seat belt, or wear yours.

    To all Facebookers: You look like idiots when you post these “dares” of jumping in cold water or pictures without makeup. What do you think you are accomplishing? Absolutely nothing ... Send money to support the organizations and then you will be making a difference.

    I smell something even worse than the Withlacoochee River. A big tax increase to help pay for all the lawsuits. Someone needs to pay for this and it isn't the citizens of Lowndes County.

    The rodeo was a great event for the area, but hopefully next year there will be more seating. Many people paid ahead of time and didn’t get to see anything.
